Springfield Police Department Body-Worn Camera Program

In May of 2021 the Springfield Police Department will begin implementation of body-worn cameras to our officers.  This technology is an opportunity to showcase and enhance the department’s commitment to transparency while further strengthening the level of trust that exists between the men and women of the Springfield Police Department and our community.
